The Function of a Heat Pump
A heat pump moves air from one space to another. It does not have to use energy to generate cool warm air or to generate heat. Manufacturers design the unit to move air in or out of a home depending on the time of year. Homeowners can experience optimal comfort while saving saving money they system works properly. A heat pump also operates at one quarter the cost of a furnace or air conditioner.
Reasons for Heat Pump Failures
For the typical homeowner, a heat pump is out of sight and out of mind until their unit stops putting out heat. The following are reasons that heat pumps fail:
- The heat pump’s coil has frozen
- The heat pump fails to turn on
- There are loud grinding noises beyond normal vibrations
- The thermostat has malfunctioned
What to Consider When Installing a Heat Pump
The first order of business for a technician is to determine the type of home where the unit will sit. He or she will take into consideration of the unit’s proximity to a neighbor’s windows and doors. They will conduct heat pump repair, or conduct heat pump installation. Either way, they will make sure the new unit does not violate any local noise regulations. For residence locations, the technician makes sure the unit will not affect a home’s structural integrity. Qualified technicians can make the best decision for locating the unit inside or outside.
The second consideration is to determine whether warmth or cooling takes priority. Will the home’s layout remain the same over the long-term? Is there enough space on either side before installing the unit? There is also the consideration for a split, or multi-split, system. Your installation technician can advise of the best location for your setup.
Your heat pump, if not portable, is best left to the expertise of a certified and licensed technician. These professionals have the knowledge and skills to handle refrigerant gases as well.
